From 30 Years of Addiction to Eternity in Christ!

Earlier this week, residents from the St. Louis and Nashville homes were blessed to hear from Denise Roman, a drug addict for over 30 years who just celebrated her two year anniversary of freedom in Christ! Denise heard Nancy Alcorn, Founder and President of Mercy Ministries, speak at a GodChicks Conference in 2008 hosted by Holly Wagner at Oasis Christian Center in Hollywood. At the end of the day, Denise walked up to Nancy and handed her a large black bag full of drugs and drug paraphernalia and told Nancy she wanted to be free from the drug addiction and that she was going to choose life! Nancy prayed over her and that was the last time Denise ever wanted drugs again! She has been drug free and sharing the love of Christ with everyone she meets for the past two years.

After sharing her inspiring story, Denise spent the rest of the day talking one-on-one with the girls, spending time with them, and praying for them. Her impact is still being felt, and we thank God for this beautiful friend that God has given us. Denise is a true miracle, and a true example of the freedom and transformation that is available through Christ. Mercy is being multiplied, and we are so thankful that when we call upon the Lord, He hears us and He answers us.

Here’s what some of our residents had to say about meeting Denise:
